Ross Lower School students participate in a Buddies program, which pairs older students with younger students. The buddies meet regularly for activities such as reading aloud together, classroom visits, art projects, and service initiatives. The program helps Ross’s youngest students form lasting relationships with older mentors and gives them a preview of what’s coming as they mature and make their way through the grades in the Lower School, and it provides the older students with the opportunity to serve as positive role models for younger children. Students remember their buddies from year to year, and buddies can frequently be seen greeting one another warmly, both on campus and in the community.
